    Satin acrylic tubes light opal are made of extruded acrylic (Plexiglas). This is a light opal tube with a special and beautiful satin surface. Because of this satin surface, the tube makes the light beautifully diffuse and is often used in combination with light, such as in lighting fixtures. The tube has a light transmission of around 80%. You can order these tubes per full-length (±2000mm) and half-length (±1000mm). Do you need smaller pieces of a tube? That is possible as well. You can fill in the desired dimensions in the saw module. One cut costs €5.

    Stock Satin acrylic tubes light opal

    On this page, you can find an overview of all the satin Plexiglass tubes. We have satin tubes on stock in diameters from Ø 40 – 400mm with a wall thickness of 3mm, except the tube with a diameter of 40 mm, this tube has a wall thickness of 2mm.


    Satin acrylic tubes are often used in the lighting industry. The tubes are limited UV-stabilized and therefore we do not recommend to use these tubes for a long-term outdoor.
    Are you looking for tubes with a better fire certification? Then we recommend to use polycarbonate satin tubes, these tubes are also more impact resistant than acrylic.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    When do you choose for acrylic and when for polycarbonate?

    Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.

    Can I order samples of tubes?

    It is possible to order samples of clear, satin or opal tubes. These samples are meant to be able to look at the type of tube and its surface. Since we only sell tubes and rods per full length, we do not have residues. That is why it is not possible to order samples of every diameter and wall thickness.
